Nadal remains on track for first Paris Masters title

first_imgReed aims for first Bellevue 5150 title LATEST STORIES Earlier in the third round, Juan Martin del Potro moved closer to securing the last spot for the finals by beating Robin Haase 7-5, 6-4.Del Potro, who lost to Roger Federer on Sunday in the Swiss Indoors final, is in 10th place in the race to qualify for the tournament. Only the top eight players will compete in London and there is one place left, to be taken in Paris.“I would love to reach London once again. It could be a fantastic moment for me,” said del Potro, who was way back in 47th place in the race before the U.S. Open. “I’m excited to keep improving for this kind of surprise.”Del Potro has a tough challenge next, against big-serving American John Isner.The ninth-seeded Isner, last year’s runner-up to Andy Murray, hit 25 aces as he beat sixth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria 7-6 (10), 5-7, 7-6 (3).Seventh-seeded David Goffin of Belgium was through to the finals in London, despite a surprise loss to Benneteau 6-3, 6-3. The unseeded Frenchman reached the quarters of a Masters for the first time since Shanghai in 2014 in his final tournament before retiring.Goffin will have waited nervously on the result of Frenchman Lucas Pouille’s result against Jack Sock. But Pouille’s 7-6 (6), 6-3 loss to the American sent him through, at Pouille’s expense, making him the first Belgian to qualify for the season finale.“I would have preferred to have qualified by winning and Lucas is a friend,” Goffin said. “But I am still so happy to have qualified.”Dominic Thiem went out early again, falling to Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 6-4.Since losing to Del Potro in the fourth round of the U.S. Open, the fifth-seeded Austrian has won only two matches in five tournaments.

It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Rafael Nadal of Spain arrives on court to play against Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay during the third round of the Paris Masters tennis tournament at the Bercy Arena in Paris, France, Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017. (AP Photo/Francois Mori)PARIS – Rafael Nadal remains on track for an elusive Paris Masters title after beating Pablo Cuevas 6-3, 6-7 (5), 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals on Thursday.He has not reached the final since losing to David Nalbandian in his first appearance 10 years ago. Nadal improved to 4-1 overall against Cuevas and next plays Serbian qualifier Filip Krajinovic for the first time.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s not the moment to talk much about the knee,” he said. He also was elusive about whether it might prevent him from playing in the season-ending ATP Finals next week in London.“Anything can happen in one week and a half,” Nadal said. “But if nothing strange happens then I’m going to be there.”Nadal was not moving with his customary speed around court in the third set but held comfortably enough for 5-2. He clinched victory on his first match point when Cuevas sent a return wide.Nadal is guaranteed to finish the year with the top ranking for the fourth time. A maiden victory here would give him a record 31 Masters titles, one more than Novak Djokovic.Marin Cilic of Croatia downed Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 7-6 (4), 6-2 and next faces veteran Julien Benneteau.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View commentslast_img read more

Perkins arrives to Phoenix practice way before call time, but still not the earliest

Leongson/INQUIRER.netLooking to make a good impression in his first day of work, Jason Perkins thought he was the first man at Upper Deck Sports Center when Phoenix began its team practices on Monday, coming to the venue an hour and a half early.But to his surprise, his sharp-shooting teammates Jeff Chan and Matthew Wright were already there. Chan and Wright were both soaked in sweat as Perkins entered the court.ADVERTISEMENT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny “I thought I came in early to practice, but Chan was already in a sweat by the time I came in here and Wright was already getting up shots. So, yeah I got to get my work ethic up. I didn’t realize it was like that here,” he said.Perkins knows that it’s just the kind of effort the Fuel Masters will need from him as the team enters a new era with coach Louie Alas at the helm.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“We’re not the biggest team, but if I have to switch to three, I’m ready for it. We’ll show it to those teams that we have a lot of heart and we really work hard,” said the fourth overall pick of this year’s draft as he acknowledged on the size disparity the league’s best teams have against Phoenix.Perkins is also well aware of the luxury he has being in a virtually same system, with Alas also enforcing a defensive pressure similar to that of Aldin Ayo’s in La Salle. But with him going up on a higher level, the 25-year-old forward knows that he has to take his game to different level as he hopes to learn from veterans Doug Kramer and Willie Wilson.“It’s not a shock to me seeing the press because coach Ayo has the most physically  demanding ones, so coming to another press, I’m already used to it,” he said. “I’m used with the press and moving as a big man and it’s something that I think I’m prepared for. But I’d really like to continue learning and talking to the older guys like Willie and Doug.” OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set UAAP Starting Five: Week 9 Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
